Flood Irrigation: Lateral Off of Head Ditch Shows Turbidity
Initially, the Alfalfa field has a head ditch with lots of sediment running off from the beds. As the test began, SoilSentry was introduced at a rate of 3.5 to 5 cubic ft / second.
The SoilSentry + Water Mix is Absorbed by the Field
Here we see the fully-saturated Alfalfa field. Now it's time to wait for the water and SoilSentry mix to finish absorbing and have a look at the beds.
Alfalfa Field After Treating with SoilSentry
Despite the soil in this field being very light and sandy, there is no rutting because of the SoilSentry additive.
Continued Irrigation of Rows
See the difference yet? There are no signs of erosion and there's no channeling between the borders of the rows.
Tail Water Runs Off Field
Note how clear the water is now, and how little the beds are impacted by the run off. SoilSentry is the cause of the reduction in turbidity. Compare this to the "before" view of the head ditch on the next slide.
